RCMP say man found dead in Surrey early Friday morning

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team is now in charge of an investigation around 156th Street and 86th Avenue in Surrey Friday; the area has been taped off by police.

Mounties say a man was found dead early this morning.

City’s Greg Harper has spoken with a man who says he heard four shots just after 5 a.m.

“I’d just gone in to get coffee; a gentleman had said… there was a shooting,” said one caller to News1130, who adds no one can get through in the area.

Police have set up a tent in the driveway of a home.

One man whose yard is taped off as part of the investigation says he didn’t hear anything this morning, but the neighbourhood has its share of “ruckus,” with loud parties.
